'Stumbled upon the Bell Inn in the village of Thorpe Le Stoken . Had a lovely lunch freshly cooked on the premises. However, what made the Bell Inn for my friend and I was the warm welcome from Sonia. Thank you Sonia for making us feel so welcome . Highly recommend the Bell Inn for value and great service'. - Yorkestor on Trip Advis0r

'The food is excellent and good value for money. We had a bit of a wait which I don't think is the norm. The landlady dealt with it before we mentioned so that was good; the food was so good it was definitely worth the wait. Quite exotic for the prices. Very good value tasty food'. - Jacqui W on Trip Advisor
